I would like you to check the idle air control motor and see if the noise is coming from there. Here is a pic of it and you can use a long screwdriver or automotive stethiscope and to listen to it. If you use a long screwdriver just put the handle end to your ear and the other on the Idle Air Control Motor. Here is the pic and let me know how it goes.

To racefan966.
Thanks for the help. I tried the screwdriver and could not pinpoint the noise. I went to a junk yard found an idle control motor ( found a new one that had recently been replaced on old junker) paid the yard $10.00 works perfect. Donated small amount to you guys. Total time about one hour. Went and bought case of beer, drank a big toast to you guys.
Thanks to you I have the rest of the weekend to play.
I will definately recommend your service to everybody I can.
Thanks again guys and have yourself a good weekend.
You guys rock!
